Thesis: Letters to Moyra

I'm a witch casting a new eco-nomic story spell, tapping the matrilineal tinker ancestory well. Commoning with my murmuration of mothers, I conjure magic feminist economic futures for our babes and others. Fighting evil by feeding everyday thoughtlessness to the worms and transforming it through baby talismans. The spell I aim to break is that of people imagining the end of our world more easily than the end of capitalism. Guided by a manifesto-quilt made of mud and fibres from the earth and flocks who dwell on it. To feed the masses and cook up a rebellion of reimagination through notions as care, joy and gratitude.
